You removed something else: the whole setup/ directory is only 70k
compressed. /etc/named and /etc/samba gains 2-3k.

The file /usr/doc/readme.html is, instead, very big: as last
resort, it will be eliminated. Its huge and also not useful, because
already on the site.

But I wish to mantain the usr/doc/help directory: it is my
personal block-notes. The only big file in this directory is (25k!). Ehm, maybe, if author allow it, we have to remove
or reduce it.

yes, you are right: some work on the /usr/doc may help.

Ehm ... I declare myself unable to understand last 2-3 sentence, sorry.
But I'm working on, with my dictionary. My english understanding is still
very rudimental!
